to the program launched in partnership with fox and the president's committee on the arts and humanities. >> at that moment i knew what i wanted to be, a crime fighter, superhero. >> reporter: young people learning from one another, wallace their teacher of the day with a few words of advice. >> work strong, believe in god, pray when you eat and always take care of your loved ones and your family. >> reporter: a 9-year-old 1 deniable star pour sharing the -- with undeniable star power sharing the spotlight where she belongs. >> got a lot of wisdom for a little girl. if you haven't seen the movie, it's really good. >> i beloved it. it's really incredible and her performance and the guy who played her dad, wow, phenomenal. check it out. we've been hearing about the crazy weather going on around the country. we warmed up a lot today. >> we were in the 50s. >> i went outside bundled up and was sweating. >> we had trapped cold air for
10:48pm
the longest time today. we had 40s and low 50s and fog and drizzle and boom, the warm air got. in it's still really mild now in the 50s, but we have a couple chances for snow this week. who wants to hear about it? >> no one over here. >> maybe the brian either. you get to the middle of february and you haven't had much snow and think okay, am i done with this now? apparently not. just when you think you'd rather ditch colder temperatures for warmer air, we have a couple surprises in the seven-day forecast which we'll talk about. today's high temperature 54 degrees, dulles 56, bwi thurgood marshall 52. it was hard to get the sunshine back, although if you live far enough west and south, you had the sun today and it was considerably warmer than -- there than it was everywhere else. 51 in culpeper, 56 in d.c. and annapolis, kind of feels nice to have a little humidity in the air.
10:49pm
it's only lasting a few more hours. we have a frontal boundary to the west coming through and it drops temperatures significantly behind it, to 39 in pittsburgh, 34 detroit, 30 in chicago and winds pick up a little bit after the front comes through. we have a wind advisory issued off to our west through 10 a.m. because in the higher elevations you could pick up stronger gusts, 50 to 55. we'll probably get 20 or 30- mile an hour wind gusts coming through. getting the gust to 22 in gaithersburg, winchester 37 mile-per-hour gust and hagerstown 32. expect winds to pick up a little overnight and for the first part of your tuesday. the winds will be better tuesday afternoon. it's looking like a nice day with a lot of sunshine, 51 degrees for our high tomorrow. wednesday looks interesting. you'll want to stay tuned. whenever we have a chance for snow on a weekday that could time out for an evening rush hour or morning rush hour, we pay attention. that's what may happen wednesday. most of the day will be dry, but we think there will be a system push up from the south
10:50pm
where we're all of a sudden seeing quite a bit more activity grabbing a little moisture getting organized tomorrow night and starting to slide our direction. unlike the clippers that we've seen so much this winter that come by to our north, they don't have a lot of moisture. the ones from the south usually do. tomorrow it's mostly a sunny day, a breeze in the morning from our departing area of low pressure and high pressure continuing to build in. tomorrow night we'll see this area of low pressure get its act together in the gulf of mexico, a weak one. i don't think it's got a lot of cold air to work with, but as the high moves out of the way tuesday night this area of low pressure could move in and it could be rain that mixing with snow or changes to snow in the northwest. cold air will be marginal, kind of might stick to the grass and not anything else, but that could change. first system is wednesday, not a lot of cold air. so we don't think it will be huge, but timing is so
10:51pm
important. over the weekend it looks like stronger batch of cold air gets into the mix and another system which is potentially stronger could be shaping up. that would be saturday into sunday. we'll have to watch this one, too. it could have the potential for some accumulation and probably more significant than the wednesday storm system. last stop futurecast because we run through tuesday with a lot of sunshine and a breeze in the morning. wednesday for the most part looks like it will be dry, too. at 8 a.m. we've got clouds starting to come in. you see this bit of moisture to our south that might be rain south and east of 95 and a mix of rain and snow north and west of 95 but at 4:00 a lot of times that doesn't stick. you keep it going till 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, and maybe get some accumulation on grass. either way it looks like it would be out of here by 10:00 or 11:00 at night. once again we're talking about four, five or six hours of snow. we'll see what we can accumulate. that would be wednesday. i'm not sure we'll get a lot out of that. we'll have to wait and see.
10:52pm
we'll pay attention to it tomorrow night closely. meanwhile it will be colder wednesday. how about valentine's day thursday, here already? we just got through groundhog day, wow. how about 50 degrees thursday. looks like friday will be decent and saturday into sunday we have to watch. this would be a coastal-type system. they always have more potential. we have not seen any except for the one last weekend. so don't like seeing another one coming this weekend, might not be so much for new england but mid-atlantic will have to watch. it is all thanks to a miracle that a washington state burglar was caught. terry miracle to be exact. the 82-year-old tackled the alleged burglar. fox's ky porter with the story. >> got a couple little boys to ask for autographs. >> reporter: 82-year-old terry miracle has become somewhat of a local celebrity even getting a standing ovation in church sunday after taking down a burglary suspect in his

10:54pm
miracle who charged the man taking out his knees. >> always lift your knee and spread it out a ways and i did that, kind of automatically, i guess, and i caught him in the knees and he went down. >> reporter: that gave cops just enough time to catch up and arrest the suspect. miracle's a little sore but otherwise unhurt. he says police couldn't believe what he did. >> i wouldn't think of myself as a hero. i would think of myself as at best a person that saw something that needed to be done and i could do and so i did it. coming up drama at the grammy awards, looks like chris brown met his match with adele, why she gave him a lesson in manners. >> we have two easy tips to book a valentine's day vacation on a budget coming up on the news edge at 11:00. ♪
